    Hahaha, very true, Bro. If I am using Notebookcheck for anything, its just to get a rough idea....thier figures are not always accurate as we have seen in the past.

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone here have an idea of whether a 680m will be compatible with an m18xr1?

    Dell parts department said it is not compatible with the mb ... basically saying I need to get an r2 ... but that does not seem right to me.

    So any info would be greatly appreciated!!! :)

    I imagine the "official" Dell stance would be exactly that, but I dont think that's accurate. They dont want to confirm it as an approved upgrade because new machines won't sell as much.....that's why it wont actually be available for a while to order as an upgrade, even for the R2 (if configured without 680m) because new orders take priority.

    Having said that, if members can put a 7970m in an R1, I would see no real reason why the 680m shouldnt be the same.....hopefully someone with an R2 and R1 with 680m's could try it out....I'm sure someone will do as soon as 680m machines start landing after being "deployed from the mothership" ;)

    Seein how nobody has a notebook with a 680m in it yet, I question the accuracy of the thread title. ;)
